TED talks inspire, educate, and inform

There is such an abundance of resources on the web that could be used to supplement courses that I thought the start of a new semester would be an ideal time to post the link to one of the richest video repositories on the web.  Technology, Entertainment, Design, (TED), http://www.ted.com features videos from leading thinkers in the science, education, business, technology, entertainment and other fields. Talks are organized by topics and include Larry Lessig ( on laws that choke creativity), Arthur Ganson (on kinetic art that explores deep philosophical ideas), Seth Godin (on marketing Ideas in the digital age), and Isabel Allende (on women, creativity, the definition of feminism and passion).

So when you have a minute or two poke around the site. You won’t be disappointed!

From TED:

We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. So we’re building here a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired thinkers, and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.
